yes, you read correctly I'm renting a herd of goats to stay on our property for about a week and clean up a thick, fuel rich hillside. We've waited awhile to be able to afford it and I can't wait. My *plan* (lol) is after they lollipop it all back and clean it up, I'm gong to maybe adopt or buy from the herder two to keep on. I know they need to be in a mini barn at night (coyotes) and after my last hair brain idea (I bought two adult unaltered males at a garage sale DON'T YOU LAUGH!!) I need some help in breed and other info on what you think is going to be best. I will not be milking. We live in Southern Cali foothills. Hot/warm climate. Rainy in winter spring. Your tips are greatly appreciated. ;-) Sylvia $2400!. Oh well. I may just bite the bullet. Honestly, the growth is so bad it's going to take 30 goats two weeks (at least). The herder is going to sell of give me two wethers to live in the corral. I told them I would purchase the fencing to it stays. Then, with the two wethers, they should be able to maintain. Yah for fire control!!! Plus, it will then create room for a a horse for us. ONce we're cleared out we can bring in a small Bobcat and grade out some flat spots.
